AG wants Adkins' civil suit dismissed

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Attorney General's Office believes that local businessman James Adkins no longer has any claims against two police officers who arrested him.  The AG's Office is seeking a dismissal of the civil suit Adkins filed against police officers D.B. Anciano and Serafino Artui. Adkins claimed the officers and the police department violated his civil and due process rights. 

Adkins was arrested after he was told to stop taking photos of a car crash that occurred near his home and for not giving police his cell phone.  The government contends the officers no longer have to defend claims that they violated Adkins' rights. 

District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood recently found that the law was not clearly established that police could not stop Adkins on the road and tell him to stop taking photos.
